IWC men’s fake watches UK have launched the limited-edition IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition “50th Anniversary Of Mercedes-AMG” watch to commemorate, as the name suggests, the golden anniversary of AMG, the performance motoring arm of Mercedes-Benz. The watch will be available in a limited run of 250 pieces and is available at only a small premium over the standard Ingenieur Chronograph Sport.
Under the dial, this watch shares the same movement as the regular production IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport or the Portugieser Chronograph replica watches UK, which is the in-house Caliber 89361. An automatic chronograph equipped with 68 hours of power reserve, this movement offers flyback functionality, a feature that fits right in with the motorsport racing theme as it is used to time successive intervals of time like race laps. It also has the unique hour and minute totalizer (which we discussed in the above linked-to article) at 12 o’clock which is intended to make the chronograph reading more intuitive.
The one difference between this IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition “50th Anniversary Of Mercedes-AMG” and the other watches equipped with the calibre 89361 is apparent when you look at the case back. Like the original Ingenieur from 1955, the IWC Mercedes-AMG Ingenieur Chronograph Sport is equipped with a soft iron cage that helps make the watch anti-magnetic, though IWC does not provide concrete figures on how anti-magnetic it actually is. In keeping with the motorsport and specifically AMG theme, the back of the soft iron cage has holes drilled into it in a radial formation to make it look like a brake disc. In addition, the back of the cage is engraved with the words, “Tribute to One Man One Machine.” This is in reference to the fact that each engine that is produced by AMG is assembled from scratch by a single AMG mechanic. Personally, I struggle to see the benefit of engraving and drilling into the soft iron cage, and think a solid case back with similar engravings would’ve been sufficient. The AMG theme, however, is loud and clear.
The dial is silver plated with a zero-to-sixty-styled index, another of the many motorsport-inspired design changes. On that note, IWC leather strap fake watches have said that the color scheme of red, white, and anthracite was meant to reflect the color scheme found on race tracks around the world, i.e., red and white for the curbs and anthracite for the asphalt. All the hands related to the chronograph function are in red, while the ones dedicated to telling time are in black. The dial is completed by a date window at 3 o’clock and in a final touch to the motorsport theme, a tachymeter scale around the edge – a feature that, while not particularly useful in this day and age, was definitely expected on such a watch.
